The Historic Fairview Cemetery nonprofit organization invites you to a fundraising event for Grave Marker Restoration/Preservation at the Historic Fairview Cemetery. Join us for afternoon Tea amidst the early pioneers who grace this old historic cemetery.

Gather your friends and family, dress up in your favorite vintage styles and hat for a delightful afternoon English Tea. Allow us to take you back to the early 1900s when the Sunday norm was Church, afternoon picnic and tea, and a visit with loved ones at the cemetery.

Lady Kathryn Glynstewart will explore the History and Etiquette of English Tea with us.

Your ticket includes a variety of English Teas provided by the Saint James Tearoom, an assortment of finger sandwiches and desserts. You will also have the opportunity to take a self-guided tour of family plots with a printed brochure and cemetery map. Tickets for the fundraising tea cost $35. This event is by reservation only. No tickets will be sold at the gate. AS OF FRIDAY, APRIL 28, REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. You can still get raffle tickets if you are already attending the event.
